Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech

Most people don’t realize that the title of the speech wasn’t in the original prepared text. It wasn’t until the famed Gospel singer Mahalia Jackson yelled out, “Tell ’em about the dream, Martin!” that the Reverend went off script and adlibbed much of the rest of the speech.

Encryption backdoors won’t stop crime but will hurt U.S. tech

Steve Jobs iPhone 2007 presentation

I was in the audience that day 13 years ago. While we “knew” it was going to be called the iPhone, we had no idea what it would actually look like. To say it blew our minds would be an understatement.
